October recap

October has past, yet again, as fast as the last few months- time is running out and I feel like I am loosing it on useless things. Take October, for example- I was busy almost every day of the month, but I haven't actually accomplished anything important. I did chores for my parents, I met with the some friends, but I didn't get a job or write on the blog.

That's one of the things I regret and feel very bad about: not being too active on the blog, when I had the time. As you can see below, my movie count is shameful, and I hate it. But lately I don't have the mood to either see or write about a film, which is weird, because I used to love it before- I still do, but it's proving to be more difficult to do. God, I am such a lazy person, I need to change things quickly this November, and I will start by making a day by day schedule I will have to keep up with- mandatory tasks regarding job search and movies. I know that if I keep at it, I will definitely reach some of my goals- I am an organized person, but I also need motivation to get things done, and that's hard to have sometimes. But no, I am determined to have a much more productive November. Focus Diana! :)

Anyway, let's stop whining and start November on a much better vibe. Until then, here's my very short list for October:

Movies
ParaNorman [2012]
Devil wears Prada [2006] re-watch
Traffic [2000]
4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days [2007]
Children of Men [2007]
Beyond the Hills [2012]

Books 2

How were you this month? lazy, active, did anything interesting?

  1. I know exactly what you mean - except I don't feel bad about it. I just know that I want to take a break now sometimes and that's okay with me.
    But it's also good that you're doing what you would like to do, so I'll be looking forward to some posts :)

  2. Hey at least you got to see Children of Men! I watched an absolute load of horror and wrote loads too! Kind of sad October's over and I haven't got a good reason to keep watching more horror now. Topped it off tonight with REC 3 which was a bit disappointing.

    Good luck with the productive November!

  3. First two weeks of October were frantic with uni! These last two weeks have been very lazy, but I've been watching movies again which is nice. Don't feel bad about not writing - if you have to force yourself you won't enjoy it, and it's nice to have a break! And the movies you saw seem fab!

  5. Making a schedule for yourself is a good idea, I usually have one for each day because it's hard for me to start doing something useful without it :) Once I start it's easier, but it's starting that is hard.

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean- if I am in the mood to do something, I can do 10 times faster than I usually do

  6. Hey, don't beat yourself up Diana, we've all been in a rut. Best wishes on your job hunt, girl. As for blogging, hey only do it when you enjoy it. Otherwise, it really defeats the purpose!

  7. When it starts becoming a chore to watch a movie and/or make a post then I suggest taking a break for a while to get your energy back. Blogging isn't the be-all and end-all of life, so if it's not bringing you something good, then maybe something else will. I've had periods where I just didn't feel like making a post.
